MSNBC hosts reached a new low when they offered their opinion about how President Trump’s popularity with his supporters might drop if special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s witch hunt negatively affects him. One of the leftist MSNBC hosts offered a unique way for Republicans to deal with the situation if their dreams became a reality, and Trump lost popularity with his massive following.
MSNBC contributor Sam Seder on Monday night said that “suicide may be the only option” for Republicans due to the polarization caused by President Donald Trump.
Seder, the host of the left-wing “Majority Report” radio show, and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin appeared on MSNBC’s “All In,” where they discussed Republicans in Congress abandoning Trump in the future if things became more toxic.
“I think the [Rep. Jim] Himes calculation is correct, right? They will abandon him if and when it’s political peril,” host Chris Hayes said. “The question is at what point that would be the case. Again, they’re underwater.”
MSNBC’s Majority Report host, Sam Seder told his fellow MSNBC hosts that “When you look at the map, right? When you look at where Trump went into those red states, and he helped—The problem is, that the polarization is such, that suicide may be the only option for a lot of these people.” The hosts laughed, as Seder clarified, that he wasn’t kidding. MSNBC host Chris Hayes then stopped laughing and agree, “Yeah, that’s right”. The camera then panned to MSNBC host Jennifer Rubin, who had stopped laughing and appeared to be taking Seder seriously.
Watch the incredible exchange unfold here:
Hayes’ quote about Himes was referring to his comments earlier in the show, where he said Republican leaders like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) will distance themselves if Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation negatively affects Trump’s approval ratings.
Someone should tell the hosts at NBC’s failing cable news network, MSNBC, that suicide in the United States is no laughing matter. According to the CDC, suicide remains a major public health problem, one that occurs throughout the year. It is the 10th leading cause of death for all Americans. Each year, more than 36,000 people take their own lives. In addition, more than 374,000 are treated in emergency departments for self-inflicted injuries.
When it comes to our veterans, the number of suicides every day is stunning. The VA claims that an average of 20 veterans succumbed to suicide every day.
